Fr. Roderick on the Newly Twittering U.S. Bishops

Father Roderick — a Twitter magnate in his own right — reports on how the U.S. Catholic Bishops Conference has hooked up with a new and rapidly growing online Catholic community at Twitter. Don't know what Twitter is? Don't worry, you soon will. Though if you've been reading this blog for the past couple of months that it's been in existence, you already know.

More and more individual Catholics and catholic organizations are discovering Twitter as a new medium to communicate with a world wide audience.

You can now even follow the U.S.  bishops via Twitter. USCCB Media Relations represent the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to the media and the media to the bishops.

On twitter.com/usccbmedia, you can read important news updates straight from the bishops, like today’s nomination of Milwaukee Archbishop Timothy Dolan as the new archbishop of New York, the most prominent post in U.S. Church. (article)

Oh, and when you get started Twittering, if you haven't already, do look me up. My T-handle is patrickmadrid
